Our next film is a lavish and opulent Hungarian production, that has often been compared to the grand movies of Hollywood director Baz Luhrmann. In fact, it was the most expensive film made in the country, which turned out to be the biggest box office success in Hungary !


It’s also a unique movie for our Film Series, as it centres around the exciting world of horse racing.


In fact, ‘Kincsem’ is the name of the most famous thoroughbred race horse in Hungary, which became a national icon (‘Kincsem’ means ‘My Treasure’ in Hungarian). It won fame around the world, for not losing a single one of its 54 races, in the 1870’s – a record that has still not been broken, globally. It’s known the world over, as the ‘Miracle Horse’!


Many books and tributes have been written about the legendary horse, and it took the Hungarian Director seven years to write the script of this unique movie. The movie portrays the pulsating life of horse racing, and within it, is woven a stormy love story between two rivals, in the political fabric of the country.


In the riveting opening scene, a well-known aristocratic horse trainer Sando Blaskovich is shot dead by his former military comrade Count Otto von Oettingen, after the Hungarian Revolution. A witness to the murder, is Blaskovich’s young son Erno, who loses everything including his palatial family home, which now becomes the property of his father’s slayer.


The film jumps 20 years, when Erno has become a dandy and womanizer, who frequents the top brothels of the country. He is a happy-go-lucky man, even though

he is always short of money.


Erno’s life changes, when he encounters Kara, the tough and spirited daughter of Count Oettingen, and  Kincsem, a wild and seemingly untamable horse. How he ‘tames’ the horse and makes him a world champion, and in the process, also falls in love with Klara, is what the movie portrays. There is also the theme of ‘revenge’ for his father’s death, which needs to be carried out, in the dramatic story.


The nerve-tingling horse races are one of the many highlights of this Hungarian film, which was released around the world, and won rave audiences everywhere.


The last scene is as riveting as the first one, when Erno and Klara have to make choices, as they are faced with a life-threatening situation.
